  • Serves 2

  • 2

    large cloves of roasted garlic (purple stripe garlic best for roasting)

  • 1-2

    tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil

  • Dried oregano

  • 1

    cup blanched cherry tomatoes

  • ½

    cup sliced zucchini

  • 6


  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • 2

    (4-oz) organic skinless chicken breast halves, thinly pounded

  • 2

    high-fiber whole-wheat baguettes (or low carb wrap)

  • 2-3

    leaves of basil

  • Simple Marinade

  • Juice of half a lemon

  • 2

    tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil

  • Oregano


Directions Combine marinade contents in a bowl. Pound out chicken breast, generously add salt and freshly ground pepper then place in marinade. Cover and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, minimum. In a skillet, sauté cherry tomatoes and zucchini in a teaspoon of olive oil. Add salt and pepper until melded. Lightly coat grill pan with olive oil and place under medium-high heat. When very hot, add chicken, cooking for 5-8 minutes. Flip over and cook another 5 minutes. Chicken should be golden brown when done. Place bread on grill until nice and hot. Take the roasted garlic and spread over bread. Add chicken breast, tomatoes and mozzarella. Sprinkle basil on top and you're done!
